Christmas has defiantly came early for so many Disney fans who woke up on social media this morning or attending the D23: Destination D event at the Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World.
If you have been following the latest updates and construction for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge coming towards both Disneyland in Summer 2019 and Walt Disney World in Late Fall 2019, and you probably are going to get the feeling that these expansions are going to be highly immersive and the authenticity will be nothing like Disney has done before with Lucasfilm.
Galaxy’s Edge will be dropping you in the outer rim of the Star Wars universe on the planet known as Batuu and the location on the planet will be known as Black Spire Outpost that was referenced in Solo: A Star Wars Story that was released last year.
Their will be two attractions for the expansion at both Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios that one will be based off the most iconic “hunk-of-junk” of the Millennium Falcon and the other will be escaping from the First Order based off the new trilogy of Star Wars.
So what were the official names of the attractions that were announced today? Let’s hype it into hyperspace to find out!
Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products Chairman Bob Chapek announced both attractions will be called; Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run that visitors can be assigned towards three unique and critical roles that you can succeed or if you have will have utter consequences on the Black Spire Outpost.
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will be smack in the middle of a firefight between the First Order and the Resistance and with Kylo Ren himself too!
However, Galaxy’s Edge wouldn’t be completed without that classic Star Wars composing score audio and the big news that was announced at the Destination D event, for which legendary industry film composer of John Williams will be composing the score the expansion.
“Disney tells EW there will be even more music for the 14-acre park expansions from Williams, who is also working on director J.J. Abrams’ Episode IX for next December.” You can check out the article from EW about John Williams scoring Galaxy’s Edge by reading it here.
Chapek did also went on and addressed more about the Star Wars themed hotel coming towards Disney’ Hollywood Studios that will connect towards Galaxy’s Edge. The hotel is still in development but, will be putting guests into a highly immersive and multiday experience on board a orbiting starship. Some new pieces of concept art was released during the event and you can check down below about it.
No official opening date or pricing was announced.
